Default Jolees transfer paper very newbie

Thank God for this forum,
So im going to start doing tshirt printing , will mostly do auto apparel and since my niece is an amazing artist she is going to be the designer.

Before i start buying all the machines i like to learn to do the process manualy first.

So i got this jolees transfer paper (light color) from michaels and used my parents inkjet printer (hp). The problem is when i iron it on the shirts that plastic thing on the transfer sheet, sticks onto the shirt causing the design to look shinny, and hard/stiff on the fabric. I tried to peel it off however the ink comes peeled off with it. Is it supposed to be that way? Is the iron not hot enough? Pls advise

Also i have done my research and came up with these decisions
1) epson wf7110
2) cobra ciss pigment ink
3) morphorn or f2c heat press machine

What do u guys think?

Don't use craft store transfer paper.

Most of us use Jet Pro Soft Stretch (JPSS)

get thee a heatpress,
especially for inkjet transfers as they require high heat and high pressure
if you are on a budget check out proworld or used

as Mike said jpss is the cat's pajamas (search the forum)

I have seen the Mophorn on Amazon. I have also seen many different names attached to that particular heat press. I have also been advised to not get one of those, that the investment is worth it to order from Proworld or any other reputable vendor who will stand behind their product and assist you when needed.

It also seems to be the general consensus around here that CISS is not the way to go. Refillable cartridges are more dependable and require less maintenance.

Awesome thanks for the advice and yes to tell you the truth im kind of having that off feeling about the mophorn or f2c since price drop is huge hehehe. I will look into proworld.

Now about the CISS i thought it was like the best for tshirts? If not what cartridge i have to search (using epson wf7110)

But guys printing tshirts using transfer heat paper should not look like what i mention right? (Plasticky , shinny on the design or picture) and is the final product the same as screen printing?

Default Re: Jolees transfer paper very newbie

depends
do you want full color designs?
jpss is only really good on white (some light colors turn out decent)
you do have to cut around your design to minimize the clear polymer window
(it basically disappears after a wash or two)

you could get a laser printer and use image clip for lights,
more options for tee colors (but not for darks)
and it is self weeding

if your designs are only 1-4 colors then get a cutter and decent vinyl
multitude of colors and even patterns (glow-in-the-dark, metallics, etc.)
this can be used on any color tee (light or dark)
